” A NEW-LOOK Ash­ford Tan­ners men’s hand­ball team pro­duced a good per­for­mance to de­feat the Uni­ver­sity of Southamp­ton 39-15 at the Stour Cen­tre on Sun­day. The Tan­ners, who led 19-7 at half-time, used the match as their first warm-up game ahead of their clash with French side Sot­teville-Les-Rouen in Fe­bru­ary. Their player-coach, 19-year-old Eti­enne Ster, led the way by scor­ing seven goals from seven at­tempts, and ev­ery Tan­ners player ex­cept goal­keeper Steve Thomp­son got on the score­sheet. Southamp­ton fielded an un­der-strength team with just seven play­ers while Ash­ford fielded a strong squad with six play­ers on the bench but the vis­i­tors still pro­vided a good chal­lenge for the new­ly­formed Ash­ford team. The Tan­ners had a num­ber of Euro­pean play­ers but there were also seven Bri­tish­born play­ers in the team, a num­ber of whom have come through from last year’s ju­nior squad. Ash­ford’s scor­ers were: Nik Panovs 8, Eti­enne Ster 7, To­mas Ka­belis 6, Ar­turs Ko­po­nans 4, Rob Ed­wards 3, Gareth Jen­ner 3, Adam Lally 2, Dan Birkin 2, James Gib­son 1, David Jasiewicz 1, Florent 1, Eti­enne Szomonyak 1. The Tan­ners hold coach­ing ses­sions at the Stour Cen­tre for all ages. For more de­tails, see their web­site at www.ash­ford­hand­ball.org.uk
